Surrounded by the three mountains of Mt. Tenjiku, Mt. Mani and Mt. Yoryu, this is a huge cemetery and sacred place where Kukai decided to make a grave for himself before death, and it is believed that Kukai is still alive here.
It is said that there are more than 300,000 stone pagodas that have been built by various ranks and various ages of people from all over Japan. Even now, people still build graves here. These distributed graves and cedar trees that are forbidden to be cut down make this a cultural landscape as a sacred place.
